These techniques are appropriate for using to end an abusive relationship, but only provided you take measures to protect yourself:

1. Do it by letter, phone or Skype, not face to face, so you will be safe from potential verbal and/or physical violence.

Skype is best because it offers the most bandwidth, the most connection.

There is a saying that you need to come together in order to come apart. Just be sure you do that in a way that keeps you separate enough that you are safe from anger explosions.

2. Focus on using the techniques yourself. If the other becomes defensive, angry, and/or abusive, end the conversation immediately.
